  1. Locking

    Locking is a village and civil parish in Somerset, England. It is a predominantly quiet residential area of North Somerset, 3.5 miles south east of the town of Weston-super-Mare and houses a large farming contingent. As well as a pub and church the village has a village hall, school, a post office, two hairdressers, a Chinese takeaway, a reptile shop and petrol service station comprising car sales and a mechanical workshop. The village gave its name to RAF Locking, which has now closed and proposals are under consideration for an employment and residential development for the site that could deliver 25 hectare of employment space and up to 1,800 new homes. In July 2011, North Somerset Council gave planning permission for the £50 million LeisureDome to be constructed on the site. It will contain a 210-metre indoor ski slope, other leisure facilities and a number of shops and restaurants.
